Gitex is the most important event in the calendar of annual technological events. Every year, technology leaders from all over the world gather in Dubai to chart the future of the industry:
Over the years, Gitex, which has reached its 41st edition, has become the most important technological event for innovative businesses, and during the Gitex Technology Week a specialized and international audience animates the event showing products and services tracking new trends.
The choice of United Arab Emirates is important because this country is, in fact, the centre of innovation in the MENASA area (Middle East, North Africa, South Asia) and, for years, it has been equipped with numerous incubators, accelerators and training programs that led to the creation of networks and facilitated the birth and its consequent development of innovative entrepreneurial initiatives.
Startups and innovative SMEs from around the world will be at the centre of the Gitex Future Stars, a specific program for young companies in the ICT sector, AI, Big Data, Cloud Computing, virtual and augmented reality, Cyber Security, Smart Cities, Smart Mobility and Agritech, and there will also be a section dedicated to creative economy in the fashion tech, art tech, sport tech, and music tech sectors.
More than 700 startups from over 60 countries and more than 400 investors at the Dubai World Trade Centre will be the protagonists of this event, trying to trigger changes in the business and society environment.
The Gitex Future Stars will offer participants the opportunity to stay at the exhibition and be able to raise capitals from venture capital companies, private equity and angel investors.
The users will be able to interact with investors and listen to the best tech gurus, in addition, they will participate in a particular contest: The Supernova Challenge.
